In what seems to be another case of the preacher’s opulence, a bishop in Kisumu was on Sunday gifted with a brand new Toyota TX Prado worth more than Sh 4 Million.
Bishop Joshua Owiti, the first bishop of the newly created Maseno East Diocese, was presented with the expensive fuel guzzler in a colourful ceremony in Ahero.
The gift comes barely six months after the 57-Year-Old bishop was ordained by The Anglican Church of Kenya.
The top of the range acquisition has, however, been questioned by some members of the church.
According to some members who sought anonymity for fear of victimisation, the vehicle is a misplaced priority as there is a half complete 2,500 seater cathedral in Kisumu whose foundation was laid more than four decades ago.
In Siaya County, another church building has stalled due to lack of funds as alleged by ACK leadership.
